To the Editor,

Re: Basic values define Blue Community label, Letters, June 23.

The city has no right to ban bottled water from public venues. The lawsuits could easily show up as contract breaking and lost profits for anyone who has a concession contract.

All future exports of fresh water would be under local government control which leads to a further step into communism or Marxism.

The Blue Water Project was developed in the Great Lakes where pollution is a problem.

The wording in the contracts are well written by lawyers with witty interpretations. This same group has an anti-pipeline mandate which will automatically use the Blue Water signing as a tool against that project.

The Blue Water Project allows people from outside B.C. to be involved in our best interests.

We already have Ottawa up one nostril.

Why would we want Ontario up the other nostril?
